The Impact of Today's Students Upon College Programs in Reading.
Carter, Homer L. J.
Some of the problems involved in teaching students admitted to colleges under open enrollment programs are the topic of this conference report. These students often enter college with the goal of getting a degree, but are not prepared for the kinds of study required in order to earn that degree. Reading skills are a major area in which such students are inadequately prepared for college. They have not acquired necessary skills, but resent drill and class exercise instructional techniques to acquire them. Perhaps more than at earlier ages, these students need instruction in reading skills which is goal-oriented and directly tied to their present courses of study so that reading instruction and course work can be integrated for maximum success. Attention should be focused on guiding and stimulating the whole student and not solely upon subject matter and materials. References are included. (MS)
